In November of 2010 Jim and Jane Skryja hosted a miniature kite workshop at their home. This was just one of several workshops and events they hosted during their tenure in San Diego with the San Diego Kite Club. This one, like all the others, was well attended.
Our Host – Jim Skryja
Jim demonstrates the proper folding of the headgear required for building miniature kites. The reason it was required is lost in time, possibly just to make everyone look foolish.
l-r: Susan, Gail, Rod, Marti contemplate their desire to make and wear the headgear.
l-r: Charlie, Susan, Eddie, Joann check out some books out to see if Jim has it right.
Walt models his newly assembled headgear. Jim promised that is how they do it in Japan.
Kite building takes a backseat to eating pizza.
l-r: Rick, Alan, Mitch, Marti, Marilyn, Jane, and Alan compare notes.
Ron gives his potential spars the sniff test. The cat impression is just a coincidence.
Jim and Ed working on sail design.
Walt shows off his handiwork.
Someone’s finished product. To get here you had to split bamboo, cut out and decorate your sail, and then assemble your kite.
Mitch and others in early flight testing.
